However, the lawyers of both parties have put forward a new proposal, and Singhania and his wife have now reached a "more realistic" settlement. It is expected that the settlement deal and divorce will be finalised in the next few days.

This comes as Raymond shareholders and board of directors remained concerned over the hit taken by the share prices and company valuation due to their MD's public divorce settlement and domestic violence allegations.

Raymond had appointed independent legal counsel Berjis Desai to advise the board regarding the divorce dispute between Singhania and Modi, but acknowledged the fact that this is a matter which lies outside their remit.

While the newspaper reported that a more realistic divorce settlement has been reached between Gautam Singhania and Nawaz Modi, throwing out the initial demand of 75 per cent of the businessman's net worth, the specifications of the new settlement are not yet known.

Gautam Singhania announced on November 13 that he and his estranged wife Nawaz Modi are in the process of separating, with the couple now ironing out the details of the divorce settlement. Modi had demanded 75 percent of his net worth for herself and their two daughters in the initial settlement deal.

Soon after, Nawaz Modi alleged that Gautam Singhania has been physically abusive, saying that he had "beaten up" their minor daughter in their home. However, Singhania refused to comment on these allegations.
